Distance-based is a great concept,  but the true equalizer is the adoption of
the CW Sprint QSY rule to a  distance-based DX contest.  Then no one gets to
park themselves on a  frequency for hours at a time and it's ALL about 
finding and making  contacts.  Talk about giving the little pistols a chance 
beat the  big dogs - that would be it...

I suspect that a good part of those making qsos in a DX contest (especially  
on the high bands, and on phone) are just looking to see what DX they can  
work.  They don't care about running, making a big score, etc. They  are very 
willing to sit around in a pileup to get a DX qso.  For them,  it would be far 
more frustrating finding something good, listen long enough to  figure out who 
it is, and then have them disappear after one qso.
